Information overdose for real

Information overdose is a settled concept amongst the half-hard at work human beings on earth. What needs to be established is a description for the actual event, and maybe some pamphlets about avoiding it.

Very short. Probably forgot he was thirsty. http://news.zdnet.c...595_22-6208313.html
Or was on a bunch of uppers... hmm. Hard to say. But what if it was just some good ol' internet, yall? [daseva, Sep 27 2007]

If you haven't already read it, you might want to read 'Future Shock', [daseva]. Dated in some ways but still pretty thought-provoking and relevant.

are you pointing at me?

Eh?

What event is this? Some kind of Roadshow?

And who is this half-hard portion of the population, how did they come to settle this concept (whatever it may be) and now that they have (settled it), wouldn't it be helpful if they shared their knowledge (of what it is, and how one might go about settling it) with the rest of us? Because right now, I haven't got the foggiest idea - it's almost as if I've been overloaded with no-information at all.

Apart from that, I strongly agree with pamphlets. Best thing ever, can't get too many of them. On a practical note however, pamphlets do, as a general rule, tend to contain information, which might be the last thing anyone suffering from this heretofore undescribed condition might want (what they want would probably be a nice lie-down).

Great thinking, zen-tom. That can be a seperate idea: Rehab centers for those suffering from IIE.

To answer your question(s): It just happens, this sharing of knowledge. People relate and give it a word and, whamo! Knowledge is shared, and everyone goes home and goes to bed. Everyone except those suffering from EEI, that is.

[k_sra], should I be? <guilt-trippy silence>
